Comment: Collateral Damage

Collateral Damage

I thought what Kerry meant by "consequence" was the collateral damage that often occurs in a drone strike, in otherwords, the people who will be maimed who are around Snowden at the time.

But in all seriousness, I think Kerry needs to take the Liberty Classroom course on logic. It does not follow that "the United States would be attacked" if the terrorists "know how to protect themselves in some way or another that they didn’t know before." Rather, it seems to be the case that "the United States would be attacked" if and only if she preemptively attacked the so-called terrorists who would "know how to protect themselves in some way or another that they didn’t know before." Or as Dr Paul would say, we should mind our own business and bring the troops home.
